The Importance of Aligning Lobbying and Policy Positions with Sustainability Strategy
Sustainability’s increased urgency is pushing companies to not only think critically about their role in driving change within their own value chain, but also how they might influence change within the larger system. Stakeholder pressures are forcing companies to be clearer and more consistent with respect to the public policies they support. One important result is the growing importance for a company’s sustainability purpose to align with how they campaign, lobby and influence policies that shape our society. This session will explore the challenges and risks companies face in navigating this emerging trend, ways for businesses to take action and prepare, and the opportunities that will come from getting it right.
